Competition: Premier League
Market: Robin van Persie to join Juventus
Odds: 3/1 @ Betfair
Manchester United striker Robin van Persie could well find himself out the door this summer, with the Netherlands international having struggled for form all through the season. The former prolific Arsenal man is said to have a ‘special relationship’ with manager Louis van Gaal at United, but the successful coach has admitted this season that Van Persie has been blow-par in his performances.
While making no word of a sale, the Red Devils would consider a serious bid made this summer, and a host of sides are said to be interested (Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, Inter Milan, and sides in the MLS). United are chasing the title next season, and are sure to spend big on more attacking talent capable of handling the Premier League.
Van Persie may now be more suited to the Italian Serie A, with his ace having all but left him, and his reactions somewhat slower than in past seasons too. As a result, Betfair are giving odds of 3/1 for the Dutchman to join champions Juventus this summer, which would see him join up with former United striker Carlos Tevez.
